How to make boba milk tea at home

Ever since I moved to California I have been a fan of boba milk tea. If you never had one, you are missing out! I would love to to consume this every day but it wouldn't be good for my health and wallet. Thankfully, our baker friend shared with us her tips and tricks to make boba milk tea at home for a fraction of its price. First thing first get the right tapioca pearl:  
After trying a few, this one is our favorite: Bolle. I found it at the local Asian grocery store or Amazon.

In a medium size pan boil 1500 ml of water
Once the water is boiling, add in 1 cup of tapioca pearl tea

Sayur Lodeh: Indonesian Vegetables Soup

This is one of my favorite Indonesian meals. I used to buy the instant seasoning but couldn't find one that taste like the one I used to eat in Indonesia. After a lot of trials, I finally found the recipe I like. There is a lot of chopping work involved in making this meal but the result is totally worth it.

Fettuccine Alfredo with cream cheese

This is one of those meals that I cook when I have little time to prepare, mostly for lunch with the kids because my husband is not a big fan of cheese and he usually eat salad for lunch at the office.

Max has been enjoying fettuccine since he was a toddler

Foolproof Banana Bread

I wasn't a fan of banana bread before until I tasted the one that my mentor made. She kindly shared her recipe with me, which I've tested for many many times. I only made a little change by reducing the amount of sugar and adding blueberries. If you never make banana bread before, give this recipe a try and you wouldn't want to buy from the store again.
